Hi,

Is it possible to get a laptop pc to automatically turn its self on at a certain time each day and if 'yes' how would I do this?


Thanks.

Kind of. You have some "Wake-On" options in the BIOS, but you still have to trigger it for it to turn on. What specific reason do you want to do this?

There was no specific reason I just wanted to see if it was possible. What are the "Wake-On" options in the BIOS and what would I need to do to get it to work?
